Prog Reviewer
2 stars This album begins off very promisingly but is ultimately let down by the weak, one key, high pitched vocals of Christiane Wand.

I love the fact that there are no guitars present at all and if you're a fan of the Mellotron - you're luck's in here - as there's loads of it. Mind you, the setting seems to be stuck on choir and strings. The mighty Moog is also utilised in large chunks. There's also a fair bit of flute too which sounds nice. For such an unknown band on an obscure label, the production throughout is actually pretty good.

A real pity, as this is an album that could have been so much better if the band had managed to find a less irritating singer who didn't sound like 'Benji Mouse' from 'The Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. Her voice was probably intended to sound angelic, but to me it's torture noise from the depths of hell... The good news is that there's only vocals on two tracks.

Dobermensch | 2/5 |
